This week in favorite things, I have lots of home decor, kitchen, dining and holiday all in neutral colors that would allow them to work for multiple holidays or year round in your home. I'm a big fan of wood, gold, and cream stoneware mixed together!
I also have three recipes for you that are perfect for holiday baking! These gluten free thumbprint cookies are lovely with strawberry jam, but I also like to use other jams to have a mix of colors. These gluten free snowball cookies are my favorite Christmas cookie.
I'm sharing some of my holiday baking essentials. Having quality products (and that doesn't have to mean expensive products) really makes baking and cooking easier. I linked below too that Target still has KitchenAid mixers on sale.
Finally, I listed several sales that are happening now. There are some really great deals if your still gift shopping or just shopping for yourself. I included some special codes for an extra percentage off at various stores.

Stuff I Love
What I'm Watching - I just watched an episode of the holiday show Baking It on the Peacock App. Andy Samberg and Maya Rudolph are hosting and I liked it. It was fun to see what the contestants made and then there are four very opinionated grandmas judging the baked goods.
What I'm Reading - I haven't finished reading anything this week, but have added The Cartiers: The Untold Story of the Family Behind the Jewelry Empire by Francesca Cartier Brickell and On a Night Like This by Lindsey Kelk.
What I'm Listening To - I love Kelly Clarkson's album Wrapped In Red. It is a holiday classic! I've also had Amazon Music's playlist The Top 100 Most Played: Holiday on shuffle on our Amazon Echo.
What I'm Loving - I'm constantly on the hunt for joggers that aren't too heavy or thick but are soft and fit well. I love (and am ordering another pair) of these All In Motion Joggers. They are on sale until 12/11!
What I Want - I love checking the new product section on Thrive Market! I want to try this Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Tahini, Brownie Mix and Sir Kensington's Special Sauce (their mayonnaise is my favorite).

My Favorite Things From Around The Web
These Santa Claus mugs are so cute! I'm not normally into holiday coffee mugs, but these are adorable.
I'm looking for a new pair of black winter boots and these pairs are all in the running: double buckle combat boots, faux fur lined moto boots, studded chelsea boots and these clog boots.
If you are looking for a little gift or stocking stuffer these pairs of silver hoops are really lovely: flat hoop earrings, plated flat hoop earrings, or thin hoop earrings.
I'm always a fan of cardigan sweaters. This cable knit version with metal buttons would make a great gift too.
Speaking of gifts, these women's pajamas and slippers would be perfect to add to your gift list! I love H&M's clothes and home section!
I got this cake stand from H&M and I love the quality. It's the cake stand in the photo above of my gluten free eggnog cake with white chocolate frosting.
I'm the first to admit that I'm not always a fan of The Pioneer Woman's line of dishes and bakeware, but I've been looking at these mixing bowls. It's a bonus that you get all three of them for under $20!
I noticed that Target still has the KitchenAid 4.5 quart Stand Mixer on sale. I love my KitchenAid mixer and use it a lot.
